Welcome to TVgasms 24 countdown. We’ve done it before for Big Brother, the TVgasm countdown event for a deserving show; but this time we are delving into waters never before tread by us folks here at TVgasm.
Starting Saturday night at 8pm/EST, we are going to broadcast live from the TVgasm studios for 24 hours straight counting down to the very moment Jack Bauer returns to the 24 premier on FOX. . . and we will do it all in classic Jack Bauer fashion, without sleep!
Why are we doing this? Well, you know the saying “it seemed like a good idea at the time?” Yeah, it something like that. We love 24, some seasons more than others. . . but we always look forward to seeing the Power of Bauer! Since May 18, 2004 TVgasm has chronicled the on-goings of the good people at CTU, even when times seemed bad we were there. This year, we wanted to add a little something extra. It is that love for 24 and perhaps a little too much to alcohol that lead to this idea.
Celebrity pop-ins, prizes, contests and your chance to participate all explained after the jump. . . .
So you get the idea. We will live out of the studio and stream live for 24 hours in honor of 24. . . but who is we? Well, since B-Side and J-Unit are, what I like to call “too smart” to do something this stupid, I will be sitting in the studio, sans sleep, with 24 newbie Jackie and we will be joined by friend to TVgasm. You may know Marc as the guy who live out of his Nissan for 7 days when the car dealer that sold him his car told him it was so loaded, he could practically live in it. His venture then went on to become Nissan 2006 ad campaign. Who better to guide us through the landscape of silly endurance challenges than him.
We also have thousands of dollars worth of giveaways. It’s crazy, you just call up a place, tell them you’re doing something stupid and they give you things to giveaway! We have bikes, balance boards, Call of Duty video games & iPod cases, DVDs, CDs, clothes, sunglasses, MP3 speakers, books, Kings hockey tickets, WWE gift packs, steak house gift certificates ( kinda want to keep that one though, maybe the winner will take me out?). . . Im not even half way through the list. We will have contests, call ins and a whole lot of random fun for 24 hours. My goal is to try to get a cast member on the phone (dare to dream, even in studio) at some point in these 24 hours.
I don’t want to spill the beans on who we have popping in, but I will say this much. For those of you who feel the need to leave the computer sunday morning to go to church, we will actually have Jesus H. Christ in the studio at 11:00am to discuss the upcoming season of 24. When you think about it, who better to talk about a really shitty 24 hours than Mr. Christ and we thank him for coming in to talk to us. With all the lives he has saved, he is in a lot of ways a pre-modern day Jack Bauer.
That’s all for now. I’ll see you all Saturday night at 5pmPST/8pmEST.
